5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I went greek and dont regret it at all

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They wont let us off unless we get more kids here so come here and party

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are many great housing options, even the Freshman dorms are pretty good (except for the fact that you have to pay fro laundry). Most buildings are clean and in good condition.The housing lottery process is a little complicated, though.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school could offer more aid, but that's with any college these days. I definitely needed a lot of aid to go to this school and honestly, I don't think it's worth the astronomical price, but the financial aid staff are pretty knowledgeable and helpful. I really wish they would lower the tuition rate, there is no reason the school should cost as much as it does, and the price is raised every year!

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Parties can be good, most people don't go to parties until the weekends. There are a few fraternity and sorority houses just off campus that a lot of people go to. There is also a dance/night club on Campus called TRAX. You would think a club on campus would be terrible, but it can actually be pretty fun. I Don't know anything about the few bars that are in town.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Public safety does not have much of a presence on campus. On weekends they are more prevalent. The school offers student rides back to their dorms on the weekends, no questions asked. There is also a policy that allows you to call public safety is you are worried about someone having alcohol poising without you getting in trouble. I feel pretty safe on campus, but I think that's due mostly to its small size. There could be a lot more street lights covering any walking paths. I'm from the city, so I like for streets to be very well lit, not just dimly lit as if I were lighting my path with a ye old candle lantern.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school just recently made it so that NO students are allowed to live of campus unless they are a resident (I.e live with their parents). They say its to have a better sense of community on campus, but clearly it is because they want to suck as much money out of students as possible.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: While there are many students involved in Greek life on campus, it is not the end-all-be-all of social life on campus. There are many non-Greek parties and non-Greeks often go to Greek parties. Everyone's pretty chill about the whole thing. The school has a no-hazing policy for Greek Organizations, but most still secretly have some sort of "rite of passage" for its initiates, which are usually harsher for fraternities than sororities (from what I hear-since I'm not involved in Greek Life myself).

4 College Freshman

Weather: I'm from Philadelphia, PA, and the weather at Susquehanna isn't much different from the weather back home. The only thing that I have noticed that is different is that when it rains' it rains pretty heavily and that the air is dry.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are actually a lot of fun on-campus events and a few fairly cheap bus trips throughout the year. Although it can get pretty clique-y in terms of groups of friends, the school environment is still friendly and inviting.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Being a school in rural central Pennsylvania, there isn't much diversity. The majority of the student body are White, heterosexual, Christian(protestant-many are Lutherans), Republicans and from the upper-middle class, but for such a small, rural school, there is a fair amount of diversity. For the most part, there is acceptance of minority groups, but there are always some incidents of cultural insensitivity, such as swastikas and the "n" word being drawn around campus. But the school has been trying some different initiatives to try and bring more cultural acceptance and awareness, which many small, rural schools don't even bother to do.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are a lot of students who do some drugs-mostly marijuana, but it's not to the point where you would feel unsafe on campus or feel pressured to join.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The school is in a very small, pretty rural town, so there really is not much to do. There are a few bars, but I've never been to any of them. If you have a car, you can drive a few towns over in Lewisburg and there are a few more things to do.

4 College Freshman

Academics: As a Freshman, my classes have been challenging and insightful without being so hard that I was stressed every moment of everyday. Professors are knowledgeable and easily accessible. Most are very willing to go out of their way to help students if they are struggling.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are a lot of students involved in varsity and intramural sports, but I don't see athletic life as having a large presence at the school. I think because our school is so small there isn't that much school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The campus food is not the absolute worst, but is also not too great. The dining hall is really hit or miss-either it's really good or half of the food doesn't even look edible. There are 4 other places on campus besides the dining hall where you can eat, Cylde's, Ele's, Benny's and Charlie's Coffeehouse (can't use your meal plan here). There is also a Starbucks that recently opened in the campus center lounge.

Susquehanna is an amazing place to go to school. While some people see it as their worst nightmare, for those who want a small liberal arts school, there aren’t many better places to go than SU. The academics are impressive, the faculty is caring, and the atmosphere created by the students is amazing. A good motto for SU students is “work hard, play hard.” Everyone is here to succeed, but having fun never hurt anyone. While there are always a couple of students who forsake the work part, the majority of campus has its priorities straight. It’s easy to strike a balance between work and a social life.

While there are shortcomings on the SU campus, they pale in comparison to the positives. There are a lot of catch-22s. Campus security is really strict, but at the same time, the campus is incredibly safe. Professors live close so there are rarely snow days, yet they care deeply about their students and open up their homes to them. As already mentioned, if you are looking for a city atmosphere or a large campus, then SU would not be your ideal spot. However, if you want a smaller school, or better yet, have no idea what you want in a school, then Susquehanna really is the place to be. You can’t get lost in the shuffle on this campus; there will always be someone looking out for you, be it professor, roommate, or peer.
